Hey guys. I've been seeing a lot of Dianas build a Nashor's tooth as a 3rd/4th item.

I haven't bought Diana myself but I was simply wondering if anyone has done the number crunching to see if this is a half decent item on Diana. The attack speed and AP looks like it could work well with her decently scaling passive, but I've always seen Nashors as a cost inefficient and lacklustre item.

Thoughts?

I'm not in the mood for maths, but I don't think it's a bad item for her, as I do agree the item seems poor on gold efficiency. I don't think it's a bad item though as one of your last or second last slots.

Could be nice. It definitely fits her more than most other champions.

Nashor's Tooth has a weird way with fitting almost seamlessly with some champions' kits like Orianna's (can use all stats, including attack speed through taking advantage of her passive) and Skarner's (attack speed + CDR + Skarner's passive = hyper spammability), but being mostly something of a luxury item.

I'd try it, honestly.

I forget how League does its math for item stats, but I remember reading that, especially after the buffs it's received over time, Nashor's Tooth is actually incredibly cost-efficient for its stats. It's problem has mostly been the stats it gives being very niche.

I remember seeing someone joke that Riot's concept for Diana was "Let's make a champ that can actually use Nashor's Tooth"

Yeah I was under that impression too. Just wondered if there is an alternative (and effective) item route to take that synergises her passive and attack speed together.

I just take Wit's End when I jungle with her, helps survivability, does almost the same thing as tooth.

Just to mention, Nashor's Tooth is cost effective if you consider the AP and CDR it grants and nothing else. It's a fairly solid choice on any AP champion who likes CDR (who doesn't?) and is encouraged to auto-attack a lot.

Well with a rabadon's, Nashor's would add about 50 damage per hit on Crescent Slash. But her other moves would benefit from the ~80 AP nashor's brings. But it definitely wouldn't hurt to have that 340 damage procing more often.

I start out with a kage's lucky pick then go into some survivability, then deathcap. Nashor's tooth is a trap I think because her manacosts are not bad so the mp5 isn't that good. Her passive is already strong without the as and she doesn't benefit at all from cdr.

The thing I want to test on her is wota, though I suspect that because of her aoe nature it won't be that good.
